Yet another rabbit pulled out of the hat in this episode. That letter was in the Infinity Box all the time? Never mentioned? You see what I mean with my criticism, not so much of the concept of the show, but with the execution of its story-line?
It's a wayward show that doesn't keep to the tracks. Imagine years back, we're watching DALLAS, all of a sudden one of the characters suddenly has Martial skills, and there's this whole hitherto unmentioned-before back story with expert fighting skills? That's kinda an unacceptable plot tweak. It just doesn't really, really fit in with the Hamptons soap opera theme. It stretches credibility to a point where it becomes just too much. What surprised me about this, this was REVENGE, a top-rated show, and no, that's not really what took me by surprise, the surprise for me being that people, the fans, the viewers, take it just like that. Two episodes ago, I didn't even place a review, I remain at a loss, the show really took a turn there with a monumental back story. Stuff that, when you watch Season 1 again, you'd think BUT HERE IS NO PRELUDE TO THAT. A surprise? No, passing just anything off onto the audience, more like it. Hell, they could do a THE COLBYS finale and have a UFO abduct Victoria and Conrad Grayson and (to coin a phrase from my native South African Dutch language) you lot might eat it for sweet cake!
Anyway, you (guys) could watch it for Emily. I watch it for Charlotte. Thank you, and goodnight. Maybe I'll stop it now. :)
As for this episode, hell, isn't (most of) the cat out of the bag now? With the realization of "a tainted jury" (the memory of) David Clarke has been all but exonerated...? And then so much of what Emily set out to do, has been done. What's gonna be the theme in seasons #3 and #4 when the current broken- backed theme expires?
